Please Note the following items regarding alternative/private loans
Private student loans are different from federal student loans in that they are not guaranteed by the federal government, require a credit check, and often a co-signer. Terms and conditions vary significantly by lender. Carefully consider your needs, and then select a loan product that best meets your individual situation.
When researching private loans, you should pay close attention to the borrower benefits, fees, interest rates, and repayment options. To calculate the interest, lenders use the LIBOR average, Prime rate, or the 91 Day T-Bill.
You may also read the KSU Student Loan Code of Conduct. This Code of Conduct prohibits conflicts of interest in situations involving student loans and to establish standards of conduct for employees with responsibility for student financial aid.
